2020 Corvette Stingray Coupe Storms America
Just as America could use some soul sustaining, eye-widening, heart pumping excitement … enter the all new and daringly different 2020 mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe 3LT Z51!
The supercar tag comes with cars approaching the $100,000 mark. Though the 495 horsepower Corvette with a 6.2 liter V8 behind the cockpit in a 40/60 weight distribution racing format, is base priced just under $60,000, our fully loaded Corvette test vehicle had an $85,710 price, which plus state sales taxes and federal gas guzzler penalty, gets very close to the six figure threshold.
With pandemic related production slowdowns coinciding with a firestorm of hype on the new Corvette, there are likely hefty dealer premiums being tacked on to America’s Supercar.
The new look of the Corvette causes cervical-dislocation inducing double takes from passersby as the low-slung, aggressively styled Stingray speeds out of view.
From the GT2 driver’s seat, with a plethora of data emitting tech and infotainment screen visuals and controls, all oriented to the driver, fighter pilot style, the Stingray is nothing less than exhilarating with a gloriously throaty four exhaust note as the V8 goes full throttle.
